Some changes

Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

Before I get into the meat of my post I wanted to give a quick update on Argo.

Well the weather is still unchanged, cold, snow, rain, mud.... well you get the point. Winter. Which means my time with Argo has basically been feeding him, breaking ice, and talking to him during my feed and watering activities. Rinse and repeat. His coat is in need of a serious brushing. Oh how I long for that day. As far as progressing on gentling, we are at a standstill. We have not lost any ground, but we have not gained any either. I am sure once the weather begins to warm up and I can spend more time with him, we will begin to progress yet again.

Keep thinking warm thoughts, that's what I am doing.

On to other things. If you have not noticed, I have been tinkering with some things here. I just changed the comments form. It allows for those with blogs to have their last post loaded into the comment form. I'm not sure if I like it yet. We shall see. Let me know your thoughts on it. Give me a thumbs up or down in your comments.

Also, you have probably seen the Unite, or Die Graphic to the right and have been wondering what the heck that is all about. If you click on it, it will take you to an outside link that will explain it better than I can. I want you to realize this is not a Republican or a Democrat subject. This is an American subject.

We are in precarious times right now and it will take everyone of us to get out of it. We can not be standing with our hands out waiting for our government to take care of us. That is not their role. We must understand and learn our history so that we are not doomed to repeat it. What our government is doing with our money needs to be highly scrutinized. Do you know that our Representatives and Senators did not even have time to read the latest pork handout, prior to voting on it? We need to be informed Americans. We need to watch what our elected officials are doing and letting them know how we want them to vote. Remember they are supposed to be representing us, not themselves and not just our Federal and State Representatives, but our Local ones as well.

So please take a moment and click on the Unite, or Die graphic. I think you too will agree with most all that is stated there, and if you don't, well this is America, where we still have the right to our own opinions, for now.

It is mighty cold in Florida right now - at least for Floridians. No snow, though. So we are sending lots of warm thoughts out there to Argo. Haven't tried the comment with latest blog on my own blog yet, but I think it is a very neat idea. After all, when someone like your blog well enough to comment on it, it is nice to give them a little thumbs up exposure, too. Hope it works well for you...I might give it a try as well.
